I just finished up my Brigitta coif tutorial. This I wanted to do for months, but my studying wouldn’t allow me that. Finally I can rest and post this out to you guys. Hopefully it works. I know their is a lack of pictures. Hopefulle this will be changed when I have the time to make another coif.

I would love to hear your meaning! Please let me know if i could do anything better.

Enjoy!

Sample of the brigitta cap

Hmm.. okay. My sample of the brigitta cap didn’t go that well. It was to small, and i couldn’t seem to tie it the right way. Thank god I didn’t you the expensive fabric!

Oh yeah! I also got my fabric. The wool is not what I imagine, but I can use it for a cape instead.

I will make this cap/bonnet as the piece I will pin the headscarf to.

Here is my patterns from the book “nordbom√łnstre”. I am going to change them a little so I can have a long sleeve and pro haps a little tighter.

When you print them about you just scale them up to 500 % and print it as a poster. Enjoy!

Fabric is on it’s way

I just bought the fabric I will use for my Nun Project. I have decided to be a Novice – this means I’m going through the admission process to be a Nun. Thought it would fit better with my age. Most nuns went through a years long Novice training. So will be wearing a white Vail.

I can’t wait to show you guys the fabric!

 

 

Nun Dress Pattern Ideas

I just stumbled over a pattern in my book “Nordbom√łnstre” (the English title is “Medieval Garment Reconstructed – Norse Clothing Patterns”). I think I will use it as the main dress. I like the idea about the pockets allot. There will also be allot of room to alterations, if needed. I will scan the pages with patterns later. You can fine more information about the book under “Books”.
